Survival of the Least Annoying

tv, hockey, sql comments edit

Watched Survivor last night at my parents’ house. I was glad they voted Joanna’s whiny, annoying, overly-pious, off-key-singing, stupid ass off the show because she was irritating the living shit out of me.

I finished the majority of the sewing on this hat project I’m working on before Survivor started. It turned out pretty good, but I’m no professional tailor or anything. Now I’ve gotta wash it to get the disappearing ink to, well, disappear, and then I’m going to iron it and start beading it. I think once the beads get put on it’ll be a lot better. Right now it looks sort of rumpled and, while I am pretty pleased with it, I think it could be better.

We went to lunch today with the CTO of the company. He took the department out because he claims we’re doing a good job. I appreciate that he thinks so, but I’m honestly waiting for the other shoe to drop. There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

The end of the hockey season is approaching, and I’m glad to see it coming. The Winter Hawks suck this season and as much as I enjoy hockey and seeing my hockey friends, it’s difficult to pay money for season tickets to a losing team. I have hope that next season the coach will kick their asses if they suck this bad again. I think we have like three games left; next Sunday is our last game. Hey, maybe I’ll actually have some free time after that. Wouldn’t that be novel?

I have learned a lot about SQL Server databases in the past couple of days. The primary lesson is: if you have a 10GB database on a 25GB drive and you decide to delete a large portion of the database, the database transaction log will not hesitate to fill up the remaining 15GB of disk space and crash the system.

Rockstar Games is distributing the original Grand Theft Auto game for PC - free! All you have to do is sign up and download it. It’s 300+ MB, so a fast connection is key, but that’s cool that they’re giving it away. I downloaded it and burned it to disc. I’ll have to try it out one of these days.

I cannot wait for March 23 - I am impatient for my GBA SP.
